Blues & Jazz Wrap-Up, Celebrate Your Awesome, Father’s Day

Blues & Jazz Festival Wrap-Up

What a weekend we had celebrating the return of the Blues & Jazz Festival!  Thank you to all our amazing businesses who decorated their windows for the occasion, prepared special menus, created fun displays and promotions, and went above and beyond to welcome & entertain our Downtown guests!  We know you must be exhausted, but we hope you had a successful 3 days!   

We would love to hear your feedback about festival weekend –did you participate in the decorating and no tax sale? Why or why not?  Is there something we, at the BIA, can do better next time to help promote shopping and dining local during the festival? Please don’t hesitate to email with your comments, feedback, and suggestions:

To those of you who received a decorating kit, please keep the items tucked away somewhere safe for next year if you can! We hope to offer kits again next year, but it’s best to hang onto them in case our budget doesn’t allow for it.

Special thanks to the organizers of the festival, and all the wonderful volunteers for their hard work!
